The National Prep Classic is the latest basketball event sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The inaugural three-day event featuring 16 national-caliber high school boys’ programs was played Jan. 6-8, 2011 at the Ponchartrain Center, Country Day and Rummel. Ten Louisiana high schools and six schools from out-of-state competed in the event.
The second annual National Prep Classic is scheduled for Jan. 18-21, 2012.
"This is an excellent event for the Sugar Bowl’s repertoire; it meshes perfectly with our mission, which is to sponsor and promote amateur sports as well as foster revenue and spark economic growth in the region," said Allstate Sugar Bowl President David Melius. "We are thrilled with the field that will be participating, with multiple state champions and teams from six different states."
